Anyone besides me dumb enough to fail to remove it from their trouser pocket before bunging said trousers in the washing machine? hmm blush

Will it still work or will I have to grovel for a new prescription?

I've never done that. Have you tried it to see if it still works? Sometimes they need a bit of a rinse to get the residue off grin

dh says squirt it see what happens, they are pressurised containers and he thinks they are waterproof.

but i would ask a pharmasist smile

I tried a squirt, and there's definitely something coming out - just not sure if it's the same stuff as before, or will still work!

Thanks both smile

Oh and stewmaker, I was hoping to avoid that particular embarrassment by asking here!

Im not sure how it works really but I wouldnt use it incase maybe some of washingliquid stuff could have got in to it - this may be impossible I am not sure - but if is possibly then you wouldnt want to inhale that during an attack

I've done this before... But I had a spare so didn't try it. I reckon it'll be fine to use if necessary (you can but try). I'd order a new prescription as soon as I could though. It's always good to have a spare. I have at least 4 in various places.

They are pressurised containers so nothing should have been able to get in, but what temperature did you wash it at though..... maybe too hot for the steroids to have survived?

And although I haven't done this yet...it sounds just like something I would and will do, so you are not alone and should not be embarassed!
